Maybe you heard about NHDD for the first time in a newspaper article this week, or maybe you have been participating as a healthcare organization or professional for three years.  No matter what, you have a chance to make a large impact with over a thousand organizations and countless events on April 16, 2011.   On that day in your city and across the United States, people will be talking about some of the biggest 'what if...' questions we can face as human beings.  On first glance it can seem intimidating, but discussing your wishes for your own care should you become sick actually gives you control, and it gives your family a sense of peace in understanding what you want.

So look for the events in your town, or start your own with our tools.  If you have an interesting story, we would love to have you share it with us.  It may even be featured on this site!
